Alcohol in Your Hair Products: The Bad, Good and the Facts

Hello, beautiful people! When I first went natural, I felt like I couldn’t use anything on my hair because all of the moisturizers seemed to always have alcohol in them! Sometimes as the first ingredient!

After further research, I learned that not all alcohols are created equal and that some would actually be helpful in helping me achieve moisturized hair! I wanted to share that information with you all! Hopefully, it will make you look at some of your favorite moisturizers differently!

I am looking forward to doing more videos like this! If there are any topics you would like for me to cover, please let me know. I would really appreciate it! Thanks for stopping by!

Crusty Edges? Could Be Seborrheic Dermatitis!

Greetings, everyone! I had been trying to think of a common issue that many are facing with their scalps to do a video on. Then it came to me! Seborrheic Dermatitis!

It’s something that I have dealt with on and off for many years and was finally able to combat! It’s a very common skin condition that mostly affects the area where the forehead ends and the scalp begins. Many things can trigger this but it’s many due to a pH imbalance on the skin and in the hair follicle.

I wanted to share the little bit I know about it with you! Hopefully, you will find some helpful information!

Maintaining My Barber Cut!

Hello, lovelies! As I shared with you all a couple of months ago (on YouTube), I got a drastic haircut. Many call it the Big Chop but I just consider it a regular old hair cut. I was natural before the cut so I wasn’t embarking on anything drastically new except this new fire cut!😎

I’ve had short hair before so I didn’t think much about keeping it up. However, I have been asked more than once how I maintain my shorter hair. In this video I discuss why I decided to cut my hair, my maintenance regimen and the costs of maintaining a shorter do!

I enjoy interacting with you all! Any questions and positive suggestions are welcomed! Thanks for checking me out!

Short Hair with Flare!

Greetings, everyone! I thought I shared my new hair journey with you all! Obviously, I did not! Well, back in January, I’m thinking Jan. 15 to be exact, I made my mind up that I was ready to cut my hair. I had been admiring some fierce fades and short cuts with popping colors lately (like the one above😍).

Being a new mom I basically had zero time for my hair. No more time for home made treatments and sealing my ends whenever I felt like it. Wash day and detangling was a headache and I was experiencing a lot of shedding. I’m thinking postpartum hair loss was a contributing factor. My new growth was so much thicker than my ends so attemping to wear a fro was just a sad experience.

My scalp was also starting to suffer. I was wearing braids for the longest out of convenience and not cleansing like I should. I felt like my hair and scalp was basically in bad condition! I had the length I always wanted but couldn’t do anything with it so what was the point?

Fresh from the barbershop!

I am loving the cut. Right now, I am aiming to grow a mohawk. Maybe more like a faux hawk as you can see in the last pic I posted. I’m having fun with the designs too! I want to try all types of cuts and colors now!

1st design. Loved it!

I told the barber to get creative. I know you can’t tell but it’s purple up top💜

I’m going to do a separate post about how I maintain my shorter do so stay tuned for that! In the meantime, I made a short video with more details about my experience! You can see where i started and my final results! Check it out!

Thank for stopping by! See you soon!
